The digital presentation of the Austrian Film Museums collection of magazines provides an insight into the extensive collection of Austrian and international movie magazines and periodicals relating to the cinema. The collection comprises over 300 different titles (approx. 150,000 individual copies) and covers a wide range of themes (aesthetics, history, techniques, theory of cinema etc.) The processing and digitising of this collection is part of the education and dissemination strategy pursued by the Austrian Film Museum since its foundation.
checkpointmedia is responsible for planning andcarrying out the complilation and online presentation of the magazine collection. Together with the Film Museum a database has been devised for cataloguing and organising the extensive collection as well as for online search using various criteria such as title, year, language, publication period etc.
